The Best Hanging Chairs For A Chic Interior

27 August, 2020
Hanging chairs are the perfect way to enjoy the magic of summer (and winter!). In this article, we'd like to show you a selection of some of our favorite models so that you can choose the right one for your home.

In the warm summer weather, we all want to get outside and make the most of it. And what better way to do that than by kicking back in a hanging chair? Chic and stylish, they’re the perfect way to enjoy a lazy afternoon or watch a beautiful sunset. So, in this article, you’ll find some of our favorite hanging chairs to inspire you.

Because there are so many models on the market right now, you can look for one that matches your interiors and will allow you to use it all year round. Make sure it can support a sufficient amount of weight, and comes with a full assembly kit, along with a base or pedestal if necessary.

When it comes to setting up your hanging chair, you need to be careful with regards to the height. Needless to say, it shouldn’t be so high that it might cause an accident, or so low that it touches the ground. 

Hanging chairs – one of the hottest trends of the summer

There’s no denying that hanging chairs have become one of this season’s must-have items. If you have a garden, patio, or terrace, a hanging chair is a fantastic option. While some models can be attached to the ceiling, others are mounted on a stand. This second option is ideal if you want to be able to move your chair whenever you like, and means that you can avoid making holes in your ceiling.

A hanging chair can also become an integral part of your interior design, whether you’re rocking back and forth by the warmth of the fire in winter, or curling up with your favorite book before bed. Sounds like heaven, right?

Hanging chairs – which material is best?

Resin models are a popular option at the moment, perfectly imitating the braiding of natural fiber. One of the main advantages is that resin is easy to clean, and is resistant to both sun and rain, so won’t be damaged by the elements.

If you decide to go for a natural material, be aware that this requires a lot more care and maintenance. Don’t let it get wet, or leave it exposed to direct sunlight for a prolonged period.

When it comes to upholstery, we recommend choosing materials such as cotton or linen. These are fresh, breathable materials that will help keep you cool in summer. Be sure to wash them regularly, and add some cushions with bright, summery patterns to complete the look.
